By Dalee Barrick, staff writer
Waurika High School won both games of their meet with Comanche on Thurs., Sept. 8.
With a score of 130-40, WHS came to play and won the first game.
“After the first game, I felt confident that our team would continue to see success and go on to win both games,” Sophomore Lily Jones said.
By outscoring Comanche, 130-60, the WHS team also won the second game.
“I knew we would come out on top in our meet against Comanche because we have some really intelligent people on our team,” Senior Destiny Zinn said. “Whenever we put our minds to something, we can do anything
Although WHS was victorious in this meet, they realize this is only the beginning and have several games to play before the district tournament. To maintain their winning streak, they must not miss practices and continue to work hard.
“There is always room for improvement, but our team is well-rounded and dedicated,” Senior Jordan Wilson said. “We will win a lot of games this year.”
Team members aren’t the only ones proud of their success. Academic Coach Ann Hodges thinks this team can go far in the competitions this year.
“I am very pleased with the performance of our high school academic team in their first round of competition,” Hodges said. “I feel we will show more confidence as the season goes on, and I am hopeful for a successful year. We have about twenty students on the team, and are also going to compete in online competitions this year so everyone will get to participate.”
Anyone who has been a part of a team should know the rule for victory is working together. The academic team is all about using this strategy, and win or lose, they have each other’s backs.
“I think we have a very bright future ahead of us,” Senior Hope Henderson said. “We started out as winners and we intend to stay winners. I am very proud of our team.”
